You might have already known Sweetwater, located just north of Tamiami Park in West-West-West Miami, is the fastest-growing city in the state of Florida, but did you know it still sizzles on a national level as well?
According to Zippia, Sweetwater is the ninth fastest growing city in America.
- Zionsville, Indiana
- Kirkland, Washington
- Cibolo, Texas
- Norcross, Georgia
- Chamblee, Georgia
- Rogers, Minnesota
- Hutto, Texas
- Prosper, Texas
- Sweetwater, Florida
- Burien, Washington
The methodology used was simple. The study compared a city’s population in 2014 to its population in 2010, analyzing the growth rate in that time period.
In 2010, Sweetwater had a population of just 13,599. In 2014, however, it was 20,562. That’s a growth rate of 51 percent!
So who are these people rushing to live in "Little Managua"? Families, mostly. It’s an excellent community-oriented city, focused on school, religion, and family. I mean, it says it right there in the motto: "Family. God. Education." Pretty much sells itself.
